I Hate eBay

Long story short bought a Spyder Freak back with an insert back on the 1st. I messaged the seller last Thursday asking where it was because he supposedly 'shipped' on the 4th from NC (even though his profile lists him being from VA ). He never messages me back, so I message him again on Saturday requesting tracking info since none was ever provided or else I would escalate it to a PayPal claim on the 16th (the end of the shipping window provided by eBay). This gets him to respond back saying he will look for tracking info and post it, I'm happy. I awake this morning to find the douche bag cancelled the transaction with a note saying 'I ran out of stock. Sorry.' Only plus was that the douche nozzle refunded me in full. Just pissed that I now have to search for this item and have to delay some buys here on MCB thanks to this tard monkey. His screen name over on eBay is logmonkey, I would avoid this guy like the plague.

I like eBay, but just recently I sold a laptop to a guy with good feedback. He said he sent the payment with his phone but that never showed. Then he actually sent a payment but it was an echeck. 2-3 days later it was rejected, and that was the last I heard from him. Pretty clear he was hoping I would send the laptop after seeing the echeck.

I've had a couple issues with broken items that I've purchased, but eBay handled those pretty well and I was refunded after the tracking number confirmed delivery.

Sounds like a pretty typical ebay experience. Sometimes I get that from the mega-sellers who can't make the effort to do inventory control, as well as from the small sellers who are clueless at times.

Most likely, someone local offered him more money... after the auction ended. A practice not allowed on ebay, but very common (even from users here who are very adept at "backdoor action").

Technically, ebay sales are strictly forbidden unless the seller specifically has the item "in hand". This makes all drop-ship sales illegal, but it goes largely unenforced.

Yea, I have buying on/off on eBay for a long time and this was the 1st time i had to deal with this crap. Frustrating waiting on an item that never shows, I knew something was up when no tracking # was listed. The kid was no mega dealer either, just a regular paintballer, hell his profile pic is him with his team. He lost any business from me.

I actually just sold something on ebay and immediately sent the buyer an invoice. Never pays, so I sent him a message kindly asking him to pay so I can ship the item out. He responds with:

Dear XXXXXXX,

im not going to buy sorry.

- XXXXXX

I have to wait 4 days to file a claim against this ******* now. Anyone else have this happen to them, and if so, what happened?

I've only ever had great results with Ebay. I don't know, maybe I have a horse shoe up my arse or something.

^^^. This.... report the guy. Contrary to popular belief, Ebay has actually gotten pretty hard on sellers who break the rules.

I have no idea why so many people have problems. Maybe it's just the perception as people only seem to post hate threads and not many love threads. Seems like a lot higher percentage of forum deals are problematic than ebay ones.



Delta,

He didn't pay. He isn't going to pay. Report him when the time is up and relist your item.
